Any breakage that this does means bugs somewhere in Emacs, because the
same function that invalidates the scan cache when a buffer is
modified also adjusts overlays and markers.  So turning this option on
does us a favor by exposing hidden bugs that are otherwise extremely
hard to reproduce.

I cannot reproduce this, and neither can Stefan, so it seems.  Please
provide a recipe for reproducing these problems.
